Once upon a time…

Time has a wonderful way of showing us what really matters…

Sauk Mountain Hike

???????????????????????????????

Mt. Bạker behind

It’s always further than you thought. It’s always higher than you thought. And it’s always harder than you thought

Skagit River. It’s so hazy there and sunny here

Mt. Baker again. View from where we stopped to take a breath.

You don’t have to be a rose to be beautiful. See, you have my attention!

2.1 mile zigzag trail, rated as a “More Difficult” hike. But actually moderate most of the way and only difficult the last .5 mile to the top.

Can’t remember how many times we said “Almost there” and then kept walking like forever.

This is how I do a selfie. Love it!

Almost there (again). Quote to keep in mind “Never measure the height of a mountain until you have reached the top. Then you will see how low it was”.

“Chasing angels or fleeing demons, go to the mountains.”

Summer here and winter behind me. Can’t tell how much I love this feeling on being on top of everything. I am here to see the world, not for the world to see me (even if I posted this picture here :))
